Sofa Louis XVI gilded wood and carved neoclassical motifs, made between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of 19th century, on models created by Parisian cabinetmakers around 1750/60; these furniture, characterized by a great sense of balance and designed with perfect proportions, were then repositioned also in the first part of the nineteenth century for Italian customers (Genoese, Florentines or Turinese in particular), for whom it is often difficult to trace to the exact origin. Our sofa rests on four front feet and two back legs shaped truncated pyramid shaped fluted columns;
Feet connected to the waist with a carved nut shaped daisy. The armrest and backrest supports are curved, rolled and grooved in the shape of a railing. The furniture has been perfectly restored and consolidated, it is in perfect condition.
Seat with cushion, backrest and armrests upholstered and newly covered in our laboratory. The furniture could originally be carved wood, then gilded with gold leaf at a later time.
Complete with certificate of authenticity (FIMA - CINOA).
